One of my favorite Chianti producers right now. Some funk as it opens. Tannins quite polished- just a balanced affair, all in all.

The 2018 Chianti Classico is a gorgeous, mid-weight wine that captures the essence of the estate's high-altitude vineyards. Freshly cut flowers, sweet red berries, licorice, mint, pine and cedar are some of the many aromas and flavors that are woven throughout. The 2018 is gracious, inviting and impeccable in its balance.

Agree w previous tasting notes from @Peter Sultan — once it opened the tannins were round and it was a nice glass. Great value at the price.

A bit tart for my taste, but a good midweek wine with garlicky spaghetti!

Tasted Feb 2021. Medium dark colored red acidic plum smell. Fruity but dry maybe raspberry almost? Quite like this definitely a 3/4
